President Trump Could Halt Birthright Citizenship

President Trump may outlaw birthright citizenship — a long-promised victory for his base — in a last-minute executive order, according to reports. The Department of Justice has been asked to weigh in on the legal implications of an order ending an automatic right to US citizenship for children born on American soil to illegal immigrants and short-term visitors, The Hill reported. The move, one of several executive orders under consideration by the Trump administration in its final weeks, would set up an early immigration headache for President-elect Joe Biden — and could spark a legal fight that conservatives have been spoiling for.
